In this review, we try to analyze the current scenario of foot and ankle surgery in India, with special emphasis on the problems faced by the indigenous population and also the challenges faced by foot and ankle surgeons of our country. Chronic infections of the foot (like tuberculosis, leprosy), neglected or mismanaged trauma cases (which usually result from a lack of awareness in the people regarding foot and ankle problems), foot and ankle problems faced by sportspersons, geriatric population, etc., form the crux of the discussion in this article.
